FGMSIATOOL Résumé de rapport

Project ID: G5RD-CT-2000-00221
Financé au titre de: FP5-GROWTH
Pays: Austria

Modelling and wear investigation

Modelling of the SiAlON material and wear mechanisms regarding the relationship between a / ß SiAlON proportions, the type and degree of wear have been performed.

ESIL developed a microstructure sub model approach for determination of the stress distribution within the microstructure with focus on particle size and relation between different phases.

Furthermore, an assessment was made to see how the microstructure design influences the flank wear on the cutting tool. Hardness and toughness test simulations have been performed to predict the appropriate material properties. An assessment has been made of the stresses and temperatures at the cutting interface
